The Sword of Rhiannon THE EMPRESS OF VENTRA- A FANTASY READ
Rhiannon believes that there is nothing extraordinary about her. All she wants is to be reunited with her father who has been abruptly snatched away. Her search leads her down an unexpected path, one she never imagined.The Sword of Rhiannon is a well-written Fantasy by Melissa E Beckwith which draws you into a world of warriors and to a time where nations fight for peace.
Rhiannon’s tale is an absorbing one and at no point did I detect any discordant note in the writing or feel the need to skip pages.I enjoyed the descriptive writing a lot.
Book One is Rhiannon’s journey of self- discovery. The angst of the character, the grace under pressure, reluctant acceptance of powers, and the wonder and the bewilderment – all of it has been beautifully brought out by the author, Melissa during the course of her narrative.
Embellishments to each character adds soul and beauty to the story without being overly dramatic.
Read this book for a riveting tale of the coming of age of a reluctant Empress.
